As for The Unfinished Swan, the PS4 version was developed by Armature Studio (Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate), the company founded by former Metroid designers. It also runs in 1080p.

"The Unfinished Swan is about awe and wonder, the kind you experience as a child when reading a book for the first or even tenth time," said Ian Dallas, creative director at the game's original studio, Giant Sparrow. "We hope to inspire this same feeling in people that are new to the game or have already enjoyed it on PS3."

Both Journey and The Unfinished Swan are cross-buy games, meaning if you already own the PS3 versions, you will also get the PlayStation Vita versions for free. For more on these games, be sure to check out GameSpot's reviews of Journey and The Unfinished Swan.
